Dynasty Warriors Next gets 9 10 9 8? That's an average of 9/10. Do i really need to play it to know that it can't be that good?

Famitsu isn't credible. Games get extra points just for being japanese.

There is literally nothing on that list that excites me.

Let me guess, nintendo fan?

Great score for minna no golf the fact that the PS3 version still got a very strong online communit (Japanese version) makes me sure that this one will have an amazing online community in japan.

Do you have to be a Nintendo fan to be not excited by that list? I own both PSP and PS3 and that list is quite underwhelming to me as well.
#10 Posted by Racer_XLR (21663 posts) -
Huh. . . I thought Ruin was a launch title. Guess not.
#11 Posted by el3m2tigre (4232 posts) -

Yep, nothing there would actually motivate me to buy a Vita at launch.

Normally, yes, most of the nintendo fans are the ones who I see keep going into every vita thread and going hurr nothing excites me.

Dynasty Warriors NEXT > Uncharted?

Feels good man.

[spoiler] Even though I don't care about the Vita version. [/spoiler]

#16 Posted by DarkLink77 (31695 posts) -

Why should we care what Famitsu thinks? About anything?

I mean, really. They're a joke at this point.

Impressive, there is no doubt about that.

Aren't they pretty much the IGN of Japan? Or worse?

the series is just so misunderstood out of Japan...people here just think it's button mashing and nothing else :/

I second that... They overeact on japanese oriented titles and are harsh in too many occasions with western games... Dunno if this is in purpose or the reviewrs/writers are easterns...but this is happening...

This is true. This is why Famitsu gave Skyrim a 40/40, and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, L.A. Noire, Gears of War 3, and FIFA 12 near-perfect scores of 39/40 this year alone.

They like their musou games. Better than any western reviewer crying about the game being too repetitive and just give it a low score without even trying to really play the game.

DW NEXT looks pretty awful though and this is from a fan. Though I prefer the numbered games.

#25 Posted by ShadowDeathX (10563 posts) -

Reminds of how Western reviewers overreact with Western games and are too harsh in many occasions with Japanese games.

Works both ways, just diverse your review sites. =)

There isn't any games I really really want from that list that makes me bend over and buy a Vita anytime soon. Wipeout 2048 and Gravity Daze (Rush) are the only things that have my interest but I can wait, I guess.

#26 Posted by crimsonman1245 (4253 posts) -

I hope Gravity Rush is as good as it looks.

The highest scoring game is a golf game? :lol:

Great launch line up, Vita.

Dont panic , i didnt say they ARE SOOOOOO dummies to actually score every single western game 5/10... lol...slash the ice!

Wow...that's very underwhelming.

Isnt that better than having a 10 years old remake as the best scoring game?

Their reviews for Western titles are generally in line with the average, if not higher. What Western game do you feel they underscored to such great degrees?

That's understandable but maybe the game is genuinely that good? :P

Same here. Uncharted is completely overrated and nothing special imo.

i agree with you i hear it a lot on sites like gamefaqs people saying on how the japanese hate western games and they overrated japanese games. with that said the vita has a pretty lackluster launch list but then all systems do
#36 Posted by commonfate (12151 posts) -

Review scores for launch lineups of new games always tend to be a bit weird anyways.

Let me make it clearer

the avg score of a game published by SE > the avg score of any western game > the avg score of any Japanese game :D

Well, when that remake ends up being a better gaming experience than just another golf simulator...

No, it isn't better.

Golf simulator? thats not what minna no golf is but anyways I;d take a new game any day over a remake of a gamew that I played 10 years ago.

Dont say the truth so.... straight!! You want again to spam boards with "" but but score"" "" metacritic"" "" N the best " ?? Come on !!!

I might be wrong, but I think Nintendogs + Cats is tied with Super Mario 3D Land for highest-scoring game at Famitsu.

Never underestimate the power of SE's checkbook. :cool:

The whole 4 scores thing was neat...until they just started handing out high scores like skittles.
